Statement of The Board of Directors of the Center for Sustainable and Cooperative Culture and Dancing Rabbit Land Trust in regards to sexual abuse:
Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage is committed to the pursuit of a sustainable, cooperative, non-violent, and just society. Sexual abuse is a tragedy that has no place in this vision, and should never be tolerated within the ecovillage or or anywhere else in our society.
We will listen with honor, care, and respect to victims and survivors of abuse, focusing on their needs. Abusers must be held fully accountable for their actions. We will support and assist Dancing Rabbit in protecting all persons from injury, including through the establishment and expansion of processes and structures to prevent abuse within the village, especially of children.
We welcome truth, no matter how hard it is to hear. Where possible, we will aid the village in working restoratively for justice. In this way, we seek to create a safer environment at Dancing Rabbit while working for a better and more sustainable world.
